Daniel Conway has been writing professionally for more than 25 years beginning in 1988 with The Good Steward newspaper articles, and editorials for Catholic newspapers on the subject of Christian discipleship and its importance for daily life. Dan published his first book, What Do I Own and What Owns Me: A Spirituality of Stewardship in 2005. Three more books on stewardship themes followed: I Like Being in Parish Ministry: Stewardship (2005), Stewardship in America: A Countercultural Way of Life (2006), Stewards of Joy (2007) and Advancing the Mission of the Church (2009).
In 2011, Dan began to use forms of historical fiction to illustrate stewardship principles. A Communion of Saints: Dreams of Happiness on the Road to Life (2011) uses imagination mixed with personal history to reflect on the mysteries of life, death and eternity. Father Turiddu: Savior of the City (2012) and Father Turiddu Returns: The Cardinal and the Inquisitor (2013) are fictional adventure stories based on the life and ministry of an actual Sicilian-American priest, now 83-years-old, who is a beloved pastor, a civic leader and a devoted brother, uncle and friend. Father Turiddu always speaks his mind—especially when arguing with the Sacred Heart of Jesus—and he knows how to handle his enemies—domestic or foreign terrorists. But most of all, he is a pastor who cares deeply about his people. His life is the stewardship story of man who knows that he has been blessed and, so, uses all his gifts to help others and to give back to the Lord with increase.
